Chicken Tamales

Reviving one of the ancient flavours of the Mayan & Aztec civilizations - Tamale, made of corn flour dough with a delicious filling, and steamed in corn husk. According to the legends, this was the first dish served by the Mayan and Aztec civilizations to conquistadors.

Tamales can be also made with other meats, cheese, fruits, vegetables and even chillies. The Aztec and Maya civilizations used tamales as easily portable food, for hunting trips, and for travelling large distances, as well as supporting their armies. They can be made in advance and refrigerated for a few days. Uncooked tamales can be frozen and steamed whenever you crave for them.

Baking powder 1 tsp
Cumin, ground A pinch
Vegetable stock 350 ml + 125 ml
Sea salt A pinch

Tools and accessories:

Large bowl, stand mixer, mixing bowl, spatula, spoons, plates, measuring cups, grill/frying pan, steamer, knife and cutting boards

Method of Preparations

  • Prepare all the ingredients
  • Place corn husks in a large bowl. Soak in hot water for 30-40 minutes covered with a plate.
  • Prepare dough ingredients. Mix masa harina, sea salt, cumin and baking powder in a bowl
  • Mix oil and stock. Start stand mixer on medium speed, gradually add 350 ml of stock. Consistency should be like a soft paste. If not, gradually add up to 125 ml of extra stock
  • Cover with a wet/damp towel to prevent the dough from drying out
  • Sprinkle taco spices on a plate. Coat chicken thighs in taco spices
  • Preheat a grill or frying pan (medium-high heat). Cook chicken thighs 2.5 minutes per side or until fully cooked
  • Set chicken thighs aside to cool down
  • Deseed and dice the tomato. Dice the shallots. Finely chop cilantro. Squeeze juice of 1 lime in the bowl
  • Mix with a spoon, set aside
  • Chop the chicken thighs into small diced pieces
  • Slice 1-2 corn husks into 0.5-1cm wide strips
  • Start assembling the tamales. Lay corn a soaked corn husk glossy side up. Add 2 tbsp of masa dough in the wider half of the corn husk. Spread it evenly in the wider half, leave 1-2 cm gap from top and sides.

Tip: dip your fingers in a bowl with clean water, it will prevent dough from sticking

  • Add the filling (chicken)

Tip: you can replace chicken and make them vegan

  • Tightly close the corn husk from sides, connecting edges of both sides together (sides, top and bottom). Do not press too hard, just gently seal the dough
  • Wrap one side of the corn husk over the other. Then fold the empty bottom part up towards the edge of the wide (open) part
  • Tie the tamale around with the corn husk strips we cut earlier
  • Place all tamales in the steamer tray/bowl. If they are too long, place an empty heatproof bowl in the middle and lean tamales on it
  • Steam tamales for 35 minutes on medium heat. Do not heat them for too long or on very high heat, otherwise, they will be too wet and soggy
  • Take them out, stack on top of each other and let them cool down a minute or 2 before serving
  • Serve with a salsa of your choice and sour cream. Experiment with different fillings and salsas
  • Enjoy!

Cumin powder 1 tsp
Dry mango powder 1 tsp
Dries or fresh leaves 1-2 tsp
Salt As required
Lime juice Half lime
Plain yoghurt 2 tbsp
Cilantro, chopped A handful
For the Biryani
Long grain basmati rice or any biryani rice 2 cups
Onions, sliced and fried 2 medium
Onion, sliced 1 medium

Green chillies 3-4
Potato, cut in big pieces 1 large
Cilantro, finely chopped 1 cup
Chicken masala 1 tbsp
Bombay biryani masala 1 tbsp
Garam masala 1 tbsp
Milk 3 tbsp
Saffron A pinch
Salt As required
Black cumin seeds (shahi jeera) 2 tsp
For the Aromatic Water
Black cardamom 1 big
Star anise 1
Ghee 2 tbsp
Bay leaves 2
Green cardamom pods A few
Cloves A few
Cinnamon stick 2 inches
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Fennel seeds 1 tsp
Coriander seeds 1 tsp
Saffron  pinch
Pepper cons 1 tsp
Salt 1 tbsp

 

Method of Preparation

For the Chicken Marinade

  • Mix all the ingredients well together and let the chicken sit overnight in the fridge or at least for 4 hours before cooking.

For the Aromatic Water 

  • Make a pouch (empty tea bag or cloth) of the small spices which are cumin seeds, coriander seeds, fennel seeds and peppercorn.

For the Biryani

  • Once the prep work is done the procedure moves on fast so keep all your ingredients ready.
  • Golden-fried onions, spices and chopped ingredients.
  • Wash and soak the rice for about 15 mins.
  • Keep a pot on a low flame and add the ghee (clarified butter) in it. Once hot enough add the whole spices that we are going to use to make aromatic water.
  • Stir well and after half a min add about a litre of water in it and dip in the pouch prepared with small spices.
  • Bring the water to boil, add salt to taste and a pinch of saffron then add the peeled and chopped potato pieces and parboil them.
  • Once the potato pieces are parboiled extract them from the water and keep them aside.
  • Now extract all the spices and the spices pouch from the water. Tip in your soaked rice and let it cook until 3/4th is done.  Once the rice is ready  you can just strain the rice and keep it aside, but keep some of that water aside to use later if needed.
  • Place a wok/pot in which you wish to make the biryani on the medium flame.
  • Add some oil and once it’s hot add the other sliced onion and stir well. After a minute add the parboiled potato pieces.
  • Add some salt to it and stir well. Once the onion and potato have a slight brown colour add the crushed ginger, garlic and green chillies. Stir well for a min or two.
  • Once the potato pieces look little brown add the marinated chicken to it and mix well.
  • Add the Shaan biryani masala, chicken masala and I added some of my homemade masala which is a mix of all the whole spices and dry red chillies, dry roasted and ground into a fine powder.  Stir well.
  • Meanwhile, warm up about 3 tbsp milk  and add the saffron to it
  • Add some salt to the chicken and stir it. Now add a thin layer of fried onion and chopped cilantro on top of the chicken.
  • Then add a layer of the parboiled rice.  Then drizzle ghee all over the rice. Pour around the saffron milk. Then a thin layer of fried onion and chopped cilantro.
  • At this point, you can add some of the leftover aromatic water so the chicken doesn’t stick to the bottom of the wok and also keeps it moist.
  • Refuse the flame to the lowest. Cover the wok with the lid and keep it airtight if possible.
  • After about 8 mins open the lid and gently check if the chicken and potato are cooked thru and the rice will be done too.
  • Serve the biryani hot and enjoy it with a  side of your favourite raita.

A Foolproof Shakshuka

Shakshuka, a traditional Turkish Breakfast delicacy of poached eggs in a hearty and spicy tomato-pepper sauce,  served with toasts is perfect for a laid back day brunch to enjoy with the family.

Recipe Card

Ingredients

Method
Olive oil

1 tbsp

Onions peeled and diced

2 small
Garlic, minced

2-3 big cloves

Bell pepper, Seeded, Charred and chopped

1
Tomatoes, diced

2 cups

Tomato paste

2 tbsp
Mild Chili powder

1 tsp

Cumin

1 tsp
Paprika

1 tsp

Cayenne pepper, to taste

A pinch
Sugar

A pinch

Salt & Pepper

To taste

Eggs

3 or 4

Fresh Parsley, chopped

1 tbsp

Method of Preparation: 

  • Heat a deep, large skillet or sauté pan on medium. Slowly warm olive oil in the pan. Add chopped onion, sauté for a few minutes until the onion begins to soften. Add garlic and continue to sauté till mixture is fragrant.
  • Add the diced charred bell pepper, sauté for 2 minutes over medium until softened.
  • Add tomatoes and tomato paste to the pan, stir until blended. Add spices and sugar, stir, and allow the mixture to simmer over medium heat for 5-7 minutes until it starts to reduce.
  • At this point, you can taste the mixture and spice it according to your preferences. Add salt and pepper to taste, more sugar for a sweeter sauce or more cayenne pepper for a spicier shakshuka (be careful with the cayenne... it is extremely spicy!).
  • Crack the eggs, one at a time, directly over the tomato mixture, making sure to space them evenly over the sauce.
  • Cover the pan. Allow mixture to simmer for about 7 - 10 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked and the sauce has slightly reduced. Keep an eye on the skillet to make sure that the sauce doesn't reduce too much, which can lead to burning.
  • Some people prefer their shakshuka eggs runnier. If this is your preference, let the sauce reduce for a few minutes before cracking the eggs on top-- then, cover the pan and cook the eggs to taste. Garnish with the chopped parsley, if desired.

Bone Marrow with Garlic Toast

This extremely delicious yet simple dish with a succulent meaty flavour is truly an all-rounder that is made to please all the meat lovers out there. It can be served as an appetizer or a main course. I prefer to serve it on toasted slices of baguette, rubbed with some garlic and some pickles on a side to cut the richness of the marrow and reset the palate.

Several benefits of bone marrow:

  • The most natural and efficient source of collagen. Great for joints and bones, speeds up recovery. Great for skin.
  • Positive effect on the brain. Helps prevent many serious and dangerous conditions related to brain activity.
  • Great source of energy
  • Boosts immunity system
  • Great source of vitamins, protein etc.

An important tip when making this dish is to soak the bone marrow in very salty water for 24-48 hours, changing the water every 12 hours. This step will help remove the impurities from the bone marrow.

Recipe Card 

Ingredients

Quantity
Beef bone marrow

2

Sea salt & black pepper

To taste
Bread crumbs

2 tsp

Oregano, dried

1 tsp
Garlic

1 clove

Baguette

4-6 pcs

Method of Preparation

  • Soak the bone marrow in very salty water 24-48 hours, change the water every 12 hours (for this dish you need to plan in advance)
  • Pat dry the soaked bone marrow with paper towels. Make sure they are completely dry. Preheat the oven to 200°C
  • Season the bone marrow with salt and black pepper, sprinkle dried oregano and bread crumbs on top of the bone marrow, gently press these ingredients with your fingers. Layer the baking tray with baking paper, place the bone marrow on the baking tray
  • Roast the bone marrow for 15 minutes at 200°C (do not roast longer than that or at a higher temperature, as the bone marrow will melt)
  • Cut a few pieces of baguette bread (2-3 should be enough for 1 bone marrow)
  • Spread unsalted butter on each side of the bread pieces and toast until golden brown on a skillet/griddle
  • Take out the bone marrow and let it cool for a couple of minutes. Puncture the bone marrow with a wooden stick to see if it is cooked, there should be no resistance
  • Cut garlic cloves in half, rub bread pieces with garlic
  • Spread the bone marrow on bread pieces, sprinkle with dried oregano and serve with pickles on aside. Pickles will cut the richness of the marrow and reset the palate.
